Rugby League returns to NINE next week, and the new season will see the network launch three new Footy Shows to keep fans entertained.

Thursday Night Golden Point and Friday Night Knock Off, are the new post-game shows that will follow Thursday and Friday Night Footy matches.

 Each week these two new 1-hour programs will explore the biggest stories from the biggest games, with insight from some of the best brains in rugby league, delivered with entertainment and humour.

Nine is promising viewers will get unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access to players and coaches around the grounds and in the sheds, offering an inside look at the pain and glory that comes with the toughest game of all.

Thursday Night Golden Point will be presented by James Bracey, Johnathan Thurston, Billy Slater, and Paul Vautin. While the Friday Night Knock Off will be hosted by Erin Molan with Billy Slater, Sam Thaiday, and Brad Fittler. 

These two new shows replace The NRL Footy Show which was axed by NINE after 25 years on the network

A third new program, Sunday Kick Off, will give viewers all the last-minute news and updates they need every Sunday afternoon at 3.00pm AEDT ahead of Sunday Footy at 4.00pm AEDT – part of seven hours of straight NRL coverage every Sunday. This includes the returning Sunday Footy Show, along with the Canterbury Cup NSW and Intrust Super Cup (shown in NSW and Queensland respectively) which will showcase the next generation of NRL stars.

Joining the commentary team in 2019 are three former superstar players: Billy Slater, arguably the greatest fullback of all time; the man widely considered to be a future Immortal, Johnathan Thurston; and premiership winner, Origin and Kangaroos representative, Sam Thaiday.

Also returning to get every week off to the right start is the round-table panel show, 100% Footy, where the experts debate the topics in the game from every angle.

The 2019 season will kick off with the 2018 Grand Finalists, Melbourne Storm, playing the Brisbane Broncos at AAMI Park in Melbourne on Thursday Night Footy, live on Thursday, March 14, from 7.30pm AEDT. The next night, the Sydney Roosters, reigning premiers, take on their arch rivals, the South Sydney Rabbitohs, when rugby league returns to the Sydney Cricket Ground for Friday Night Footy

And a brand new programming concept will debut this season: Magic Round in round nine, when all 16 NRL teams converge on Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane to do battle over four exhilarating days.
